Program description

WoodGreen’s clinical social workers strive to fill gaps in care for clients living with complex health and psychosocial issues. Our Comprehensive Care and Integration Specialists connect clients to essential services and supports; coordinate follow-up care; and provide case management, counselling and advocacy on housing, legal, financial and immigration issues. We work with clients to develop individual Coordinated Care Plans and support their care providers to work as a team. Our goal is to bridge the gap between acute and medical care providers and the community sector.
